Waiting for a Dream
Waiting for the present, for the present to pass Waiting for a dream to last You are not my lover, and you never will be 'Cause you've never done anything to hurt me There's a fire in the priory And it's ruining this cocktail party Yesterday I heard they cloned a baby Now can I finally sleep with me? Diving through the rising, through the rising waves of night Keeping a reflection of you in hindsight But in turning back the brackish waters will not reflect you After you have turned the color black of death or something like That There's a fire in the priory And it's ruining this cocktail party Yesterday I heard the plague is coming Once again, to find me There's a fire in the priory And an ogre in the oval office Once again we all will be so broken Now can I finally sleep again?
